41% Grenache, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah       $88  
Showcasing a deep cherry red and magenta core, the nose expresses delicate red fruits of currant and strawberry, assisted by  structured graphite, cassis and blackberry from the generous helping of Cabernet Sauvignon.  Opulent and full textured, French oak accentuates the mouthfeel, but is never dominant. This togetherness combines the lovely floral aromatics of Grenache with the savory panache of Cabernet.  While accessible now and carrying a seamless structure and mouthfeel, patience will reward mid-term cellaring of around 4-6 years of release.
